A timber beam AD, 6 in. thick by 10 in. high and loaded as shown in Figure P-910, is pinned at its lower end and supported by a horizontal cable CE. Compute the maximum compressive stress developed in the beam.
A boom AB is supported in a horizontal position by a hinge A and a cable which runs from C over a small pulley at D as shown in Fig. P-346. Compute the tension T in the cable and the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction at A. Neglect the size of the pulley at D.
A cylinder weighing 400 lb is held against a smooth incline by means of the weightless rod AB in Fig. P-309. Determine the forces P and N exerted on the cylinder by the rod and the incline.
